Rainbow Junktion cafe uses intercepted waste food to serve lunch every Monday, Thursday and Friday to anyone that walks through the door. We are trying to fight food poverty with food waste and we really need a vehicle to carry out this mission!
In order to pick up the food from various places around Leeds (TRJFP in Pudsey, Waitrose in Meanwood, several Tesco branches around the city, RK Harris in Headingley to name a few) and keep us open for the community we need a good working van specifically for the cafe. We are hoping to source one for £2000 and really need your help.
Everything at the cafe is pay-as-you-feel but many of our customers are vulnerable, homeless, socially isolated or in financial difficulties and so are not able to contribute much. The café not only provides nutritious food but helps to build a sense of community and provides a safe warm space for people to come, get advice or use the wifi/charging facilities. We have no other source of steady income so a big expense like a van is not really possible without you!
If you would like to donate then pop along to https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/rainbowvan and do please share this link far and wide!

Please only book a ticket if you are definitely coming (or cancel the tickets as soon as you know you can’t make it), we have had a real problem with no-shows at our events which means we cook too much food and also stops other people from booking tickets. Thank you.
